There are multiple sites that I log into (Netflix, Amazon, Firefox Hello, etc.) that are reporting that I am running an old version of Firefox. I am running versions 36.0, which reports to be up to date. I'm at a loss.

On my Windows 2000 SP3 my current Firefox version is 3.0.19. I cannot upgrade it any more! There are two phenomena: 1.) When using the 'search for updates' function it offers an upgrade to MAX. version 3.0.19. 2.) When I upgrade manually (to version 15) it unpacks the files properly but does NOT start the installer - without ANY error message.

And I cannot find any version archive here to try a stepwise upgrade to e.g. version 5 or 10, unfortunatelly. Isn't there any archive?... Or which problem to you think, I have?...

Thank you for answering.

On help, when it checks for updates it tells me I'm on the latest one, but everywhere else (such as Devientart or Mozilla Startpage) it tells me that I need to update. I'm sure I updated to, and I can't access certain pages without being on the latest browser.

When I try to send out an e-mail, it lets me enter the recipient's name and a subject but I am unable to enter anything in the body. I have not been able to add attachments for a while now because of the last time I upgraded. As I stated, this is my business e-mail and I really need it to be working. Thanks for any help you can provide.

Every single website url address, or url address within a website page is being added to my location bar/address bar drop down menu.

I don't want everything added or saved in the location bar. Only urls that I used a lot used to be saved there but now every single url (and url within a url)I visit is being added to it.

How can I stop this? This just started happening.

I'm sure it's a simple browser setting but I've checked and nothing gives an option to control this.

I marked coupons on Target.com.Was told I must download Coupon Activator. I downloaded it but can't install it. What am I missing? I already had a coupon printer installed but it seems Target wants this one.

I am running ver. 11 of Firefox but Gmail keeps saying I am running ver. 3.6. I have disabled EVERYTHING but I still keep getting "Some important features may not work in this version of your browser, so you have been redirected to the Basic HTML version. Upgrade to a modern browser, such as Google Chrome." AFAIC, 3.6 IS a modern browser. Are they doing this just to get me to use Chrome? I am running Windows XP SP3

I just was forced to upgrade (darn) and my home page (Comcast.net) will not take depite following the easy instructions on "make my homepage". The Comcast site just "flickers" in the browser. All other bookmarks/favorites are fine, I now have to go to IE to access Comcast.net (home page for me). Can I "un-install" the upgrade that I was forced to download?
